9:12 am
governor there is a lot of thoughts to winning your state this time around. what do you have to say about it >> thanks for having me on. it is clear that we are competitive in the purple states above mitt romney and president obama have been here on repeated occasions. to me the president did well and won by 7 points. and the last three cycles have done well winning by 18. they care about getting people back to work and spending cuts and to be able to manage the debt and deficits and those are the things that mitt romney is talking about. he has a bold plan for unleashing the energy here and that is the president has been attacking and i am optmistic. there is a lot of independent
9:13 am
voters and the romney message is better. and it is a dead heat right now. >> governor i know it has drosted since you were sworn in and balanced the budget without raising taxes. why does the say the only way to raise jobs. >> it is the wrong formula. you look at virginia with those numbers and taken a fiscally conservative approach and the private sector is the key to getting the greatest country back to wk and growing again. you can sky them saying no, we need to raise taxs and it is the wrong formula that you see in illinois and places like that. it is not working and the president's idea about increasing taxes on every small business that he's
9:14 am
promosing and increases by 500 billion in obama care. that message of tax increases is hosstillity and call on natural gas and energy and the fact that he's not a build leader on things that virginia know and that will tip the balance with the voters. there is a political fire storm over the white house decision to t states waive work requirementings it is that moved people from welfare to work. what is the impact. will this be a major campaign issue? >> i think absolutely uma. it is part of the big decision in the election between more enments and guarantees. and mitt romney believes like me and republicans that more
9:15 am
activity and acess to the american team is the way you build it back to prosperity. and so, this idea of eliminating or doing waivers to get red of the work requirement something that we championed in 95 in virginia and something that bill championed and to say that the social compact and you work for your benefits and now you waive it is outrageous. can it has moved m people from federal government and now to freedom and opportunitis and jobbings. more people focus on this and i will. more they focus. the more they realize that the president is out of touch. maybe are concerned that it
9:16 am
will foster more personal responsibility. >> you agree with that? >> absolutely. that's how we got ourselves in to this mess and from the recovery and great depression from the 30s. and otherings. we put more and more people in dependence of the federal government. we had cycles of people. and you got to work and pursue opportunity and if you do so you are rewarded for your efforts. >> you can make more money by staying at home and opposed to working and completely under minds . he is admitting his job policy is a failure. that is 25 million people
